Development-Induced Displacement in India and China : A Comparative Look at the Burdens of Growth Hardback
Edited by Florence Padovani
The world seems to have recently discovered India and China as major players in Asia, and political and economic connections between the two countries are rapidly growing.
Beyond the fashionable phenomenon, the two countries have much in common and many shared experiences.
Both are developing countries with dynamic economies focused on lifting their people out of poverty.
There are also differences as well, as India is a democracy while China is an autocratic state, and the speed of economic growth is much higher in India.
This collection provides a comparative analysis of development-induced migration in India and China caused by urbanization and dam construction.
The contributors include scholars from both countries working in both academia and consultancy positions.
